Queens Park Rangers FC is exploring the possibility of building a 30,000-capacity stadium on the site of the Linford Christie Athletics Stadium after being thwarted in its attempt to develop at Old Oak Common.

According to multiple reports, the Championship football club wants to demolish the athletics venue and build a stadium on the site alongside a new adjacent athletics facility.

The Linford Christie Stadium – currently used by the Thames Valley Harriers athletics clubs – is situated next to Wormwood Scrubs.

Lee Hoos, chief executive of QPR, said the proposal “could bring benefits to both clubs”, but a consultation process would have to begin before any plans were submitted.

“We are looking at all possible options to secure the future of the club in Hammersmith and Fulham and benefit the community,” he added.

QPR had originally earmarked a site at Old Oak Common, which is owned by Cargiant, to build an ambitious 40,000-capacity stadium and housing development, but opposition to the plan from the landowner stopped it in its tracks.

The club currently plays at the 18,000-capacity Loftus Road.
